Faculty Learning Community
The Faculty Learning Community (FLC) program was started in 2016 in response to the COE Strategic Plan 2014-2019, and featured regular lunch meetings where like-minded faculty could convene and discuss topics of mutual interest. The two original FLC tracks were in (1) student success, and (2) in engineering education. The current FLC content will feature online learning and instructional design. Faculty can contact Eileen Chen at firstname.lastname@example.org to get added to Canvas shell for 2019 resources.
